Look no further, we’ve found the perfect tropical vacation destination, and it lies between the great Caribbean and Pacific seas. Costa Rica is a lush Central American paradise known for its rainforests, beaches, volcanoes, and incredible wildlife. There’s really no bad time to visit this beautiful land; with the sun shining year round, warm tropical breezes envelop the country and attract tourists from around the world. Start off your vacation by coasting over to the capital, San Jose. Enjoy the popular local cuisine of rice, black beans and plantains before checking out the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, which holds an extensive collection of over 1600 artifacts of Pre-Columbian gold dating back to AD 500. Next stop on the list is the Nicoya Peninsula, an 80 mile shoreline of pristine beaches and charming villages. You absolutely cannot miss a visit to the Arenal Volcano in the northern lowlands, once one of Costa Rica’s most active volcanoes. This area holds a wide number of adventurous outdoor activities for visitors, such as hiking through the mountains, fishing on the lake, soaking in the hot springs, and rafting down the winding rivers. If you want a truly memorable Costa Rican experience, you must take a drive down Guanacaste, Costa Rica’s Gold Coast. This stretch of glorious white sand beaches boasts some of the best snorkeling and surfing you could possibly imagine. Go beach hopping in popular spots like the Gulf of Papagayo, Tamarindo, Samara Beach, Santa Rosa National Park, and Coco Beach. Don’t leave this heavenly country without a trip to the Corcovado National Park, an 11,000 acre misty rainforest filled with a large abundance of wildlife and beautifully scenic landscapes. Costa Rica is nature’s paradise and an absolute must-see for those seeking both adventure and relaxation.
